Press Release - Redistricting Efforts

For fifty years, in spite of population changes in Orleans County, our legislative

district lines have remained essentially the same, resulting in some districts with more

voters, and others with less, which means, in effect, that some votes are worth more

than others when it comes to electing representatives to the County Legislature.

The Orleans County Democratic Committee has filed a petition with the court to

require the county to form districts with equivalent populations, and to uphold the

principle of “one person, one vote”.

Our petition asks the judge to instruct the County Legislature to review two

recent sets of census numbers, and to prepare a plan that addresses the one person

one vote objective.

Why take this legal route? To get the legislature's attention.
